Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Slide Guitar Magic Of Bob Weir

I always thought it would be funny to put out an instructional video with that title. I usually cringe when I hear Bobby pick up a slide, much in the same way I do when Donna screams in Playing in the Band. However I did find this gem of a show 12/28/79 where Bobby is actually dead on with the slide. Instead of playing these dreadful lines, he is playing very tastefully. Check out Surgaree, and Row Jimmy and Casey Jones. I'm not usually a fan but of Row Jimmy but I think Bobby's slide really makes this one happen. That said, any other suggestions of Bobby playing slide like it is supposed to by played?
